Can you believe that it has been exactly one whole year today since I worked up enough courage (& bikinis) to set up at our very first farmer's market?! I can't decide if I feel like it's been longer or shorter than a year but I do know that it has been such a freakin adventure!
This last year has been filled with such positive vibes & lots of love for my small business!
I really can't believe how far Coco Kini has come in such a short amount of time. At this time last year I was making a few sales here & there & it was mostly just a hobby. I didn't have all the time in the world to dedicate to Coco kini but I sure did stay up late every night just making bikinis because I wanted to. During the winter I really had to put all of my energy & attention into my embroidery business & kind of left coco kini on the back burner. I didn't really think that it would grow the way it has & honestly I think I kind of lost sight of my goal.
Then January came around & I decided to get back on the sewing machine. I ordered some pretty fabrics & I started putting a ton of time into bikinis. I became obsessed. Actually, obsessed is an understatement.
At this point I think it became apparent where my heart was.
It took a while to convince myself that I was ready to reopen the shop but I eventually did. With the help of you guys of course!
BEST. DECISION. EVER.
Well until I realized just how difficult it was to run 2 businesses on my own. I was seriously in over my head.
I knew I was going to have to give something up. But I wasn't going to settle on that because I wanted both!
I took a leap of faith & asked my former assistant to take over the operations for LPE so I could focus on Coco Kini.
SHE SAID YES. 💍
No that's not dramatic. It was THAT exciting!! It's only been a few months since I gained the opportunity to put every waking minute into Coco Kini but it was the best adult decision that I've made yet! I am having the absolute time of my life & seeing how far I've come in just one year makes me so excited to see what this next year will bring.❣️❣️ (My novel is so long I have to post the rest in the comments)
